A 'Blooming Great Day'

the theme for this month is
Look for Circles Day
and perfect to ink up my favourite
Visible Image Stamp called Creative Chaos
as it has LOTS and LOTS of circles.

I started with a piece of watercolour card stock
that I had smooched from leftover 
 Nuvo Cherry Bomb Shimmer Powder.
I then heat embossed that gorgeous flower with
black embossing powder then went to work on
inking up umteen circle images with
VersaFine Clair Summertime, Tulip Red
and Cheerful also circles from
That's Crafty Texture Stamp Set #2
Added a few patches of black from Prima Firefly stamp.
The centre of the flower is coloured with
Lindy's Prairie Wildflower Powders
in Yellow Rose of Texas and Peony Scarlet Red,
Grab a Guy Gold Shaker and the same Nuvo Powder as above.
Also randomly stamped inside the flower.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Carved Flowers
I added a Lawn Fawn Stitched Border 
to the left side and corner rounded the bottom right.
Attached to SU Hello Yellow card stock.
Here's a close up of the flower centre.
I am also adding this to the 
November Challenge for Ink Art Designs
over on Facebook as the stamp set
is available at the Store Here and
Addicted to Stamps for their
Anything Goes Challenge #179
and getting in by a smidgen for
The Flower Challenge #38 Spots or Stripes
with lots of spots!

Thanks for dropping in today
